I washed the shirt to stop the process and... failed!! Appears that the negatives have blocked UV rays and heave not printed the images. Nevertheles...
Last month we're selected to participate into Lumi night at Makespace Madrid. This instructable summarizes a failed experiment. I decided to reuse old negatives to customize a shirt. This is the process.
Natural fiber shirt, old negatives, scissors, Lumi product set, adhesive tape or other opaque material to the edge.
Step 2: Plan the layout
I want to write the letters MKS (Makespace)
Step 3: Making frame
There are many ways to do it, here are used adhesive tape. The framework helps the dye is on the inside of the letters.
Step 4: Apply dye
Once finished the frame, apply the red dye evenly and without flooding.
Step 5: Remove excess dye
With a paper remove the excess dye to ensure product uniformity on the shirt.
Step 6: Place the negatives
As interested as remaining stuck to the fabric may opt to fix them with sewing pins.
Step 7: Expose to sunlight
The exposure time was between 40 minutes and one hour because the day was overcast (with full sun 10-12 minutes)
Step 8: Wash the shirt
I washed the shirt to stop the process and... failed!! Appears that the negatives have blocked UV rays and heave not printed the images. Nevertheless, I like the result and are looking forward to further customize clothes with Lumi, a great product very useful and easy to use
